Your Ultimate Salad Dressing (You can add a little fresh Garlic if you wish)
In your blender, combine onion, Drizzle, vinegar, mustard & honey; begin running machine until mixture is smooth. Slowly drizzle in extra Olive Oil until mixture is well combined. Taste it. If its too thick and/or Oily add a little Verjuice, a little more Cabernet drizzle or well balanced white wine. Season with salt & pepper.
Salad so simple
Clean salad greens & tear into bite size pieces. Place into a large bowl & refrigerate.
Don't over cook the Venison
Preheat grill to high temperature. Remove Denver Leg from marinade & grill on both sides, approx 4 minutes per side or until medium rare. Season with salt & pepper. Remove from grill & keep warm.
Arrange a healthy serving of salad on each plate and drizzle with dressing. Arrange a few slices of Venison on each and dot with Cabernet Drizzle. Apply a generous teaspoon of Beetroot Relish to each plate and leave the jar on the table for second helpings.
